The company will maintain its visibility in trackside signage, public address announcements, and in graphics that will appear on NTPA’s official mobile videoboard.

Hot Shot’s Secret Brand Manager, Josh Steinmetz, says, “We are so excited to step up our commitment and offer this bonus series to the pullers. NTPA is a great series that we have been a proud sponsor since 2020. Coupled with our Title Sponsorship of the NHRDA and ODSS, we are now represented prominently at all leading diesel motorsports industry events and series. The Hot Shot’s Secret Challenge provides a fun and exciting series within the points chase and it will all culminate at the National Tractor Pulling Championship in Bowling Green, Ohio. We know the fans and pullers will love it, and we can’t wait to get the 2023 season started.”
